Employee lifecycle management. Delivered.

It’s hard, but it’s essential. You want to hire the right people to complement your existing team, help each employee reach their full potential – and get the basics right every time.

The Challenge

  • It’s tough to manage and retain the best people.
  • You’re drowning in paperwork.
  • It’s hard to pay people accurately, reflecting vacation allowance and unauthorized absence.
  • You don’t really know how your teams are actually doing – and who your stars are.
  • New recruits are often completing the wrong paperwork, causing delays in the process. 

Our HR software solution holds all your HR information in one place in the cloud, where managers can find and understand it easily. By cutting admin time, you can help them focus on customers and staff.

Key Benefits

  • One system for all employees avoids duplication and error.
  • Compliance controls for everyone.
  • Our tools help you manage paid time off and dramatically reduce unauthorized absences.
  • Make sure applicants complete the correct information with automatic presentation of the correct federal, state and local tax filing forms.
  • Fourth Analytics gives you vital information that’s easy to understand, helping you make better decisions.



Employee Database

The Problem
Managing a staff of permanent, seasonal and temporary workers can be a minefield. Lateness, absenteeism, non-adherence to PTO allowances and maverick pay – all recorded (or not) on hundreds of spreadsheets – hit margins and make you less efficient.

Our Solution
With our HR software solution, you have the latest versions of all HR data in one place, securely stored and accessible in the cloud. By eliminating duplication, errors, unnecessary spend and administration, you can now focus on efficiency and margin. Your employees get easy-to-use, permission-based, mobile self-service to update their personal details. And you make big savings in overhead costs.

Digital Onboarding

The Problem
Once you’ve found the right candidate, you want to get them in and started as quickly as possible. Paper documents are an administrative headache, taking valuable time to prepare, delaying decisions and creating confusion.

Our Solution
With our solution, the employee record can be set up with just a few pieces of information, and the new hire completes all the relevant information themselves. Correct forms are presented based on the information the new hire enters, eliminating the risk of them completing the wrong documents. What’s more, verification processes are streamlined through direct integration with E-Verify, and information flows through the system to scheduling and payroll, avoiding duplication and errors.

Absence Management

The Problem
With everything else going on in the business, you also need to keep on top of calculations for accrued Paid Time Off (PTO), keep track of authorized and unauthorized absences, and make sure employee’s pay is correct.

The Solution
With Fourth, managing absences is simplified. Accruals are automatically calculated, and employees can request PTO on their mobile devices, which managers can easily approve or deny. And pay is automatically adjusted to reflect absences.

How to address restaurant payroll challenges

How can you make sure your managers won’t have to spend precious time fixing mistakes – or that you won’t have to pay hefty fines for non-compliance with federal, state or city minimum wage laws?
Life without Fourth’s labour solution would be incredibly laborious and time consuming. It’s really difficult to assemble any meaningful data to base future spend on without it. I would recommend it without hesitation to any multi-site hospitality operation

Fourth’s inventory management system has improved our profitability by enabling great visiblity on our inventory ordering and management. Overall, there has been a fantastic 4.88% difference in GP in favour of last financial year. I expect this to improve still further.
